This June, strange things will once again be afoot at the Circle-K. Yep, it’s finally official: Bill and Ted Face the Music is set to begin filming this summer. The long-awaited end to the beloved trilogy is expected to be released in 2020 and that is definitely most excellent.
After almost three decades, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are set to reprise their roles as the titular slackers who are somehow put in charge with saving the universe. William Sadler will also once again take on the part of Grim Reaper, the antagonist-turned-ally who helped the heroes defeat evil robots from the future in Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.
Somehow, that bonkers plot will have to be topped with this next film. All that’s known about the storyline so far is that middle-aged Bill and Ted will have to once again team up to create a song that saves life as they know it. Judging by their band’s history in the first two movies, this will certainly prove to be quite the challenge.
It’s currently unknown how the pic will deal with the absence of Rufus this time around. George Carlin starred as the boys’ time traveling mentor during both movies, but has since passed away. The Twitter account for the project confirmed that the comedian would be honored in some way, though it remains to be seen exactly how the writers decide to go about doing so.
One thing’s certainly for sure: the third installment of the franchise is sure to be just as wacky, if not more so, than the originals. It’ll be hard to top the insanity of the first two flicks, but fans will be expecting quite the show considering the extremely long hiatus since the last movie.
Bill and Ted Face the Music is expected to hit theaters in late August of 2020. Wyld Stallyns forever!
